MEET YOUR MATES

Somerset House Terrace Bar x San Miguel

Somerset House has reopened its outdoor terrace. Open all day until late, it offers a selection of San Miguel beers, sundowner spritz cocktails and tapas plates. Currently the only place in the UK where you can get San Miguel on tap, the terrace has a happy hour every Friday from 6-7pm when two pints and two tapas dishes – think garlic prawns with flatbreads and patatas bravas – go for £20. Feeling adventurous? The San Miguel Sundown Spritz is a refreshing mix of tequila, pomegranate juice, lime, grenadine, agave syrup and San Miguel Especial.

GET YOUR CULTURE FIX

For The Record Exhibition At The Photographers Gallery

The new exhibition at The Photographers Gallery in Mayfair celebrates album covers over the decades, reflecting on their role in shaping and making artists – both in front of and behind the camera. Bringing together over 200 album covers, the exhibition features iconic images by Andy Warhol, Cindy Sherman, David Bailey and Helen Levitt, many of whom had their careers launched through their cover images. From Robert Frank’s legendary imagery for The Rolling Stones to Annie Leibovitz’s visionary work with Cyndi Lauper, it showcases the visionaries and artists behind the lens. Tickets cost £5.

Until Sunday 12th June; 16-18 Ramillies Street, Mayfair, W1F 7LW

ENJOY SUNDAY LUNCH

Manteca

Italian-inspired restaurant Manteca in Shoreditch recently received a Michelin Bib Gourmand award. Now, it’s opening its doors on Sundays for the first time, with a special lunch menu featuring sharing dishes for the whole family. Begin with snacks of fried Nocellara olives stuffed with Italian sausage and focaccia or mortadella and salumi, before tucking into starters like house-made ricotta with roasted grapes and pangrattato; or wood roasted cabbage with miso and pancetta. Main dishes include tonnarelli with brown crab cacio e pepe; rigatoni with kale sauce, chilli and parmigiano; and lasagne served with roasted porchetta and salsa verde. You can also try a range of European wines, served from magnums, chosen by Manteca’s sommelier.

TUNE INTO THIS NEW PODCAST

Untold Killing Series 2

Untold Killing just dropped a new series. Series one told the story of the genocide in which more than 8,000 Bosniak-Muslims were murdered in Srebrenica. Series two explores the story of Prijedor. Thirty years ago, as the world watched the disintegration of Yugoslavia, ordinary people were systematically identified as ‘other’ and divided by their ethnicities. As the Bosnian war began in the spring of 1992, these divisions manifested in a sinister and calculated way. Thousands of Bosnian Muslims and Croats were detained, tortured and killed in concentration camps. Over six episodes, the podcast explores the camps’ political and ideological implications, the personal stories of those held there, and the long-lasting effects on the camp survivors and their families, who now live scattered across the world. An important listen.
